The Political Economy of Conflict and Redistribution (PolEcCon) Summer School 2022 is aimed at young researchers in the early stage of their careers as PhD students and Postdocs, notably in the fields of Economics and Political Science. The School provides research-oriented lectures by senior experts in the field of the Political Economy of Conflict and Redistribution.

Methodologically it will cover theory and experiments in the field and in the laboratory. In addition to these lectures, participants will have the opportunity to present and discuss their own research and their research papers to the whole group. There will also be a panel discussion by the Summer School lecturers. Opportunities will also be available for work and discussion in informal groups that might lead to collaborative research efforts among the participants.

The working language of the Summer School is English.

Whether and in what format the Summer School can take place in August 2022 depends on the pandemic situation. We very much hope that the situation will have calmed down by then and that we will be able to hold the event on site with all participants.
